"The two most important things we teach a horse before anything else is to break at the poll and raise his shoulders. The bit is the tool we use to communicate with the horse. The clearer the signal and the more comfortable the bit, the less confusion the horse is going to experiance, and the faster he is going to learn. This basic concept is what gave me the idea to create a bit that would give the rider a tool to clearly signal the horse to break at the poll and raise his shoulders, without confusing the horse or scaring him in the mouth. And why not make it a bit that would not only be a good training tool, but also a legal bit to show with."(Dennis Markle)

The Mylers have designed an entire bitting system to effectively communicate with any horse at any level of training. Based on bitting a horse appropriately through his training, the system works by releasing points of pressure and using softer bits as the horse progresses.

Features:
Sweet Iron – A strong metal with a sweet taste as it slowly oxidizes or rusts. Encourages the horse to salivate, creating a softer mouth.Copper Inlays – Small strips of copper are placed in the mouthpiece to encourage salivation, creating a softer mouth.
